How to install pcmcia wifi card under Mandriva 2007?
I'm a newbie in Linux and I have a problem with my Level One LAN PCMCIA WPC-0301 wifi card - it works perfectly under Win, but Mandrive doesn't see it at all, writing "No device found" in Control Center. And installing windows *.inf driver also is in vain - Mandriva answer that there are no hardvare installed. It also doesn't see PCMCIA bus as I think.
Are there any solutions of this problem? I couldn't find any linux drivers for my card on Internet... Help please!

I used to have the same problem with my packard bell. Updating the kernel solved it for me.
first go to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/
and there go through the steps to set your urpmi database.
after this open "install new programs" from mandriva control center and search for kernel-188.8.131.52mdv-1-1mdv2007.0
( OR if you prefer just go to console and type su, give root password and then type urpmi kernel-184.108.40.206mdv-1-1mdv2007.0 )
after the installing is finished, reboot the computer and in the boot menu choose to boot from your new kernel ( I think it's listed there as "2.6.17-8" ).
